Netanyahu Slams Abbas Speech As “Hostile And Poisonous”


netanyahu2Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s strong critique of Israel in his speech at the United Nations today as “hostile and poisonous,” and full of “false propaganda,” according to a Reuters report.

“These are not the words of a man who wants peace,” Netanyahu also said in a statement released by his office after Abbas spoke at the General Assembly ahead of an expected vote to implicitly recognize Palestinian statehood despite the absence of a peace deal with Israel.
